The Bruins will get a big lift tonight in their first game since the Boston Marathon tragedy.
Bergeron, the league’s reigning Selke winner, hasn’t played since taking a Colin Greening hit in a 3-2 win over Ottawa on Apr. 2.
Marchand, Boston’s leading scorer, hasn’t played since taking an elbow from Anton Volchenkov in a 5-4 win over New Jersey on Apr. 10.
Redden, acquired at the Apr. 3 trade deadline, hasn’t played since appearing for the Blues in a loss to Los Angeles on Mar. 28.
The 35-year-old veteran was picked up mostly for insurance purposes, but will look to spark some puck movement on defense and possibly get a spin on the power play, where the Bruins are just 3-for-30 over the last 15 games.
The only Bruin not making a lineup splash tonight is Swedish import Carl Soderberg.
The 27-year-old did practice with the B’s on Wednesday but won’t make his Boston debut until Friday at the earliest (when they host the Penguins).
